My daughter (we are very close) is due to give birth soon. Her partner today has said that he doesn’t want anyone else at the hospital. Firstly, he asked what do you want to do. Then when we said we’d head to hospital once our daughter was in labour. Then he claimed that he wanted no-one at the hospital except themselves. He wouldn’t even call to say they were on their way. I really don’t know what to say or do. I know it’s their decision - however in the back ground my daughter was shaking her head.
Never been in this position before so I really don’t know how to react.
Apart from that if he decides he doesn’t want to be in the delivery room it leaves my daughter alone.
Struggling with all sorts of emotions. And all he kept saying is I want control! Once you guys arrive I’ll have no control.
Want to do the right thing by everyone.
No one informed us - family bereavement
Should we ban them? - politicians on TV
Hard to develop relationship - family far away
